Stanley Cup live scores refer to the current score of each Stanley Cup playoffs game as it is being played. Keeping up with Stanley Cup live scores and box scores is a great way to follow any Stanley Cup bets you may have placed before puck drop, although the fun doesn’t have to stop there.
Every Stanley Cup playoff game features live, in-game betting that sometimes directly correlates to the current score, among other factors. For example, if the Montreal Canadiens are losing 3-0 to the Tampa Bay Lightning in the second period of Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals, there will be live in-game bets available, such as wagering on the Canadiens to tie the game, or to make the full comeback and claim the win. Since 3-0 is a sizeable deficit, the odds for an in-game live bet of that nature would be fairly lucrative, due to the perceived unlikelihood of such a comeback.
Live betting can also focus on specific players and what they might do during a game. For example, if Auston Matthews scores a goal at the beginning of the second period, a live betting market may open up so bettors can wager on whether or not he’ll score another goal before the end of that same period. Another example would be if a goalie had a shutout with 10 minutes left in the third period. At that point, it could be shrewd to wager on that goalie to officially complete the shutout.
